Has anyone had experience with Midwest Book Reviews?  They will review a paperback for free, but you have to send them two copies.  Ebook formats cost $50.  It all seems reasonable.  I need some editorial reviews (I have 36 reader reviews from Amazon and 77 ratings on Goodreads).


The larger question really is where do Indie authors go for editorial reviews as most newspapers won't touch self-pub books.

I think I used them. It was fine but slightly generic. I had an issue with the reviewer changing her email or something and she didn't get my review in by the first of the month so it was published later and had less viewers. Oh well.
